What is plaque?

Plaque is a sticky film over the tooth, made from leftover food particles and saliva that mix in your mouth. If you don't brush properly after meals, it begins to develop and build up on your teeth. This can contribute to tooth decay and gum disease.

When do I see a dentist?

You may be unaware that a cavity has formed. Therefore, dental check-ups are important, even when you do not feel pain. However, if you experience a toothache or mouth pain, see your dentist as soon as possible.
